The San Francisco Giants began their title defense today in the first game of Spring Training. I know it’s Spring Training and it doesn’t mean anything. I’m just happy to hear baseball on the radio again!
Tim Lincecum got the game started by giving up 3 runs in the first inning, including 4 hits in a row. Miguel Tejada struck out swinging in his first Spring Training at bat in a San Francisco Giants uniform. Should we start to worry, and hit the panic button? No way, it’s just Spring Training! Tejada did end up with an RBI single in his second at bat.
The Giants found a way to get the win. The final score was 7-6 Giants. Yes another torture win for the Orange and Black! Buster Posey was the only Giants player with 2 hits, and he also had 2 RBI’s.
The starting lineup was DH Andres Torres, 2B Mark DeRosa, SS Miguel Tejada, C Buster Posey, RF Cody Ross, LF Pat Burrell, 3B Pablo Sandoval, CF Aaron Rowand, 1B Travis Ishikawa and pitching was Tim Lincecum.
